Meteor Vineyard Perseid Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Meteor Vineyard Perseid marries the elements of our clonally diverse planting in one singularly expressive wine. While the press remained enamored with the 2007 vintage, an unsung classic aged gracefully in the cellar. Aromas of ripe blackberry, wild cherry and currant meld with hints of smoky sweat tobacco and clove. The palate displays rich mouth watering fruit with ripe tannins and a soft silky texture. The finish is heady and long, with an impression of warmth that carries the aromatics and suffuses the senses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Perseid is a gorgeous, fleshy wine. Finessed, supple tannins frame layers of dark red fruit, spices, tobacco, flowers, leather and licorice that emerge in this impeccably polished, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2008 Perseid should continue to drink well over the next decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

Wine SpectatorA dense, rustic, even chewy, effort, this delivers potent cedar-cigar box spice notes, with chewy, extracted dark berry, mocha, dried herb and mineral flavors that turn to roasted coffee accents on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2024.
